The Craven collection is once again open to the public on the 1st and 2nd April. Anyone planning a trip or is it me going to my 'happy place' on my own again?!

 

Cheers Col

Hi Col.

Hope to get to Dick Cravens collection around 10.30 all thing being equal. Looks like it could be a nice dry motorcycling day so I will dust off the Honda!

Hopefully meet up there?

Cheers

Eyup Col,

Hope you and Shan are both good.

Which day are you going - or are you just there for the whole 48 hours?

Doing the egg run Sunday morning but may come straight up after that in the afternoon.

Keep threatening but never been.

Would be good to see you and catch up.

We were thinking about going Sunday as I think we have snow forecast for Monday in York! Suppose I could lob a bivvi bag down in Army bike section as it has got curtains (well cammo net). I could happily live in the place..if there was some form of heating in there! So I guess we'll be looking for Andy rather than Andy, Andy - if he's wearing the red trousers!

 

Cheers Col

Erm. Not quite a Bantam, but owned by a newly fledged Yorkshire Bantamite. Sadly there was no red leather trousers involved but Andy and I did meet up at a very chilly Dick Cravens! Somehow a temperature inversion had occurred and the inside was several degrees colder than the outside. As usual Shan and I played the 'spot the new stuff after winter ' game and there was signs of tidying up in one area - at this point I had to sit down with a coffee and tasty biscuit.

 

Cheers Col

To my mind, it's a pity 'modern' bikes no longer look like that. It's one of the reasons I go for the older ones, added to which you can still carry out your own maintenance / repair.
